The Oceanside Project: Bossanova Part 1  


"Blame It On The Bossanovas: Part 1"

Warnings: Woohoo (seriously, when isn't there woohoo?), naked bums, excessive ballet, Mean Girls, Brodie Mason, and the longest update ever.

Day One

Bossanova 034

Please meet the splash-happy twins Selena and Diego Bossanova. Selena joined the Oceanside Project in order to teach the children of the new land. As soon as the first of the founding families' children transitions to childhood, Selena will start the Education career and will have an elementary school built for her. Diego loves to dance and wants to eventually open his own dance studio as soon as he learns how to instruct in dance.

Selena's traits: Nurturing, Friendly, Hot-Headed, Over-Emotional, Proper.
Diego's traits: Flirty, Friendly, Hates Reading, Party Animal, Natural Born Performer.

*sigh* Hi Brodie Mason, Oceanside's postal carrier.
Brodie: Ah, let me stretch my long legs while getting soaking wet from all of this rain! (Is Diego watching me?)

Bossanova 043

Apparently he was. Diego introduces himself to the delight of Brodie.

Bossanova 051

Selena heads inside to make comfort soup for everyone. They need to warm their bones after all of that time playing in the rain.

Bossanova 057

Diego finishes his scintillating conversation with Brodie...

Bossanova 059

and comes inside lighting a fire to warm the place up.

Bossanova 061

Bossanova 067

Since the law career opened up Diego confides in his sister that he thinks he should take the job until he's ready to own his dance studio.

Bossanova 069

Selena doesn't agree. Being a lawyer is a lot of responsibility and hard work that Diego just isn't ready to do yet. She thinks he is much better suited for the journalism career*. All he has to do is go around town looking for news and writing about what he finds. Plus the newspaper currently has nothing but ads for Malcolm Landgraab's campaign and reminders from Vivian Moneywell that everyone has to pay taxes anyways. It would be nice to have real news in it.
*I told you I was counting all of those fires!

Bossanova 081

Diego agrees and decides that he will become the town's reporter... tomorrow.

Bossanova 082

Because today he wants to have fun and relax so he invites his own welcome wagon over.

Bossanova 085

Bossanova 086

Selena's fiance Connor Firestone and Diego's main squeeze Matisse Troubadour hurry over. Connor is Oceanside's mechanic and Matisse is the resident artist, photographer and, apparently, everyone's BFF.

Bossanova 091

Hmmm, Selena must be giving Connor a tour of the house...

Bossanova 092

WHAT ARE YOU DOING? That's Diego's room. He's going to kill you if he finds out!

Bossanova 099

WHAT THE HELL!!!!1 What is this some kind of pregnancy pact or something? Why are all of my girls trying for baby?

Bossanova 100

Luckily Diego is none the wiser that his bed has been "christened" as he woos his lady love in his tights and toe shoes.

Bossanova 101

Bossanova 102

All of that wooing seems to have worked. Diego convinces Matisse to a "house tour" of his own.

Bossanova 105

Diego: Hey sis, I'm going to give Matisse a 'house tour.' *wink wink*
Very subtle Selena.

Bossanova 118

Matisse's house tour ended in the same place Connor's did. Luckily no one became pregnant during this one!

Bossanova 151

Bossanova 152

Tisk, tisk Mister! As soon as he woohoos Matisse he wants to make-out with three sims!

Bossanova 160

It seems that Connor was behind the try-for-baby plan. He and Selena spend most of the night in the hot tub discussing which toys their new arrival should have.

Bossanova 166

Bossanova 167

Bossanova 170

Time for their guests to leave...

Bossanova 172

and Selena to get some shut-eye.

Bossanova 175

However Diego wakes up abruptly...

Bossanova 178

when he senses his lady love about to be mauled by a wild creature outside!

Bossanova 183

Matisse: My hero!
Ugh, weren't you just here like an hour ago?

Bossanova 204

I see, that's why you came back over. You're not slick Matisse Troubadour!

Bossanova 215

*sigh* Romance sims!

Bossanova 219

Day Two

Bossanova 001

Bossanova 004

After Matisse leaves Diego practices his ballet. His dream in life is to become a world class ballerina.

Bossanova 011

Bossanova 012

Bossanova 019

Bossanova 020

Bossanova 027

Selena wakes up in a good mood hoping that she and Connor will be parents soon. I guess this means we need to move up the wedding date *grumble grumble*

Bossanova 029

A quick trip to the bathroom confirms Selena's wishes.

Bossanova 035

Selena wanted to try crafting pottery. This will be a great skill to teach the children in art class once her school opens.

Bossanova 032

Bossanova 033

Bossanova 040

Looking good!

Bossanova 043

Bossanova 046

Oh. Well maybe you can use it as an example of how not to make a plate to your students?

Bossanova 047

Diego Bossanova becomes Oceanside's first journalist. His first task will be to head the town's yearbook chronicling their first year in Oceanside. Surely he can get the help of Matisse to put it all together.

Bossanova 053

Selena starts another project...

Bossanova 054

while Diego takes a nap.

Bossanova 058

Bossanova 062

Brodie is a little bummed that Diego wasn't awake to talk to her as she stops by to collect the mail. Look, it's Vivian Moneywell the town's treasurer strolling by.
Brodie: Hmph. That's the chick that wouldn't let me help with her wedding planning. I'm not talking to her!
Can't we all try to get along?

Bossanova 070

After a hot bath Selena becomes ill again. She's pretty sure that she's pregnant but will have to wait until she's checked by soon-to-be doctor Minka Yomoshoto.

Bossanova 078

Selena spends the rest of the afternoon building sand piles...

Bossanova 082

burning comfort soup...

Bossanova 087

and studying Anger Management which will definitely come in handy dealing with unruly school children.

Bossanova 101


Bossanova 110

Diego awakens from his nap and resumes his barre exercises. He's getting so much better at it!
